I have a couple of rifles for which I'd like to find correct accessories (bayonet with scabbard, cleaning kit, sling, ammunition carrier/bandolier):

U.S. M1917 Enfield (Eddystone, WWII arsenal refurbished)
Lee Enfield No. 4 Mk I* (Savage)
For the Enfield, I could go with WWI or WWII accessories. For the Lee Enfield, WWII, of course. Can anyone help me identify which accessories would be most correct? I would consider reproductions but would prefer originals if still affordable.

Thanks!

Matthew

The U.S. M1917 Enfield would use the standard U.S. cylindrical nickel-plated oiler, that has a compartment for a pull-through set on one end. That goes in the buttstock. The "correct" sling is the Kerr patent khaki sling, although the leather M1907 sling (and for WWII, the web M1 sling) could be used. Another neat accessory is the removable magazine cutoff that fits in the magazine well and converts the rifle to a single-shot.

Thanks, guys.

For the Lee Enfield, the Savage No. 4 spike bayonets don't seem to hard to find, the scabbards are a little harder, but no one seems to have the cleaning kits in stock. Any leads?

For M1917, I haven't seen any sources for a complete cleaning kit and original bayonets seem hard to find and quite expensive. Any ideas?

Cheers,

Matthew
